Dead Space 2



  UR R26R.5, VW Golf R
Comes out on Friday. The demo is great, and the first game was fantastic, IMO. Very underrated (even though it picked up good average scores). It's also the only game that has made me jump. F*cking monsters pretending to be dead... :mad:

This one is doing well on Metacritic, average of 91% so far. IGN gave it a 9/10.

Dead Space 2 is an amazing game. I'm going to write about its scary moments, cool kills, and how much I dig the main character's internal struggle, but Dead Space 2 is about more than this. When I beat it for the first time, I sat on the couch with my heart racing and dissected the journey I had just taken. Then, I started my second playthrough, and when that was done, I jumped into a new game for the third time. Dead Space 2 is just that good.

:cool:

noooo! Can't watch a review for this shizzle (for maximum scares)..I did like the first one but it gets fooking hard towards the end though!

only just picked up the first one a couple of weeks back after having a go on the demo for this.

Not sure why peeps are saying it's hard/getting stuck though? I pissed through first time?! (on medium difficulty) On second playthrough now and only need two more achievments before the magic 1000/1000.

Think I might wait for this to drop in price before buying though...

Just played the demo there.

iJumped.

Couldn't get any further than the gravity room bit as I don't have a clue what to do.

Doubt I'll buy it... if I do I'll be buying the first one first.

the one that matey lets out of the glass stasis/container thing in an old school resident evil way? If so see below....

run away. You can't kill it......yet


Am I right in thinking number 2 has multiplayer too? I'm not entirely sure how that going to work and is one of the things that puts me off the idea of getting it.
 
I spent about 45 mins or so playing the first one and thought it was pap tbh. Yup very creepy (in a huge rip off of event horizon etc way) but clumsy as f**k in terms of controls which rather than adding to the tension was just annoying IMO.

wanting a full report on this scutch! im thinking about getting it as im pretty much bored with gt5 now
 
Only played 15 mins ( just got the cutter gun ) , seems better in every area than the first one and i loved the first one.....scary an all.

Yeah, it's a bit f*cking in your face. It's like walking through a Haunted House.

:cool:

I'm on Chapter 2.

I turned the first one off after a couple of hours and never picked it up again because I thought it was complete s**t - totally mindless in terms of gameplay, appalling control/view setup, not scary and thoroughly underwhelming graphically.

would I like the second one?

The first one was awsome, the second one is even more awsome.

One of only a few games that I can say EA have done well on.

Depends though. The PC version was definitely hampered by a very poor control interface - which was clearly an after-thought of the cross platform devs. A lot of software houses do think about the control options available to the PC player and go out of their way to accomodate them. Others are just plain lazy and cba - requiring 8 fingers per hand and for you to be stood upside down to comprehend the input on screen.

3rd person view for me rarely works well either. Even in good overall games such as Just Cause 2 - the 3rd person is hopeless when the action gets frantic. 1st person all the way....

What about Uncharted 2? And Resident Evil 4/5? They wouldn't work at all in 1st person view!

Agree on what was said above - the PC version control is awful.

360/PS3 is a must. :cool:

I'm on Chapter 12 now. Some of the memory recalls are great, as I remember the locations and situations well from the origianl Dead Space - being dragged by that mutant worm and having to shoot it's rotting flesh!
 
  none :(

A briefcase?! IIRC you have to use telekinesis to remove the panel cover and then use the left or right analogue to find the 3 blue wires. Could be wrong. I don't think the briefcase is of any relevance.

i pressed some things by the ball, and some extentions dropped down, but got stuck after that.

they are on a timer, they stay down for a while then go back up again. To lock them down you need to be quick, make one come down, use the "slow down thing" (forgot what it's called lol, the other thing you can do that isn't kinesis) then run round to the one opposite and bring that down. Do this on all of them and it's done. They are like elctro magnet things, once they are down they stop the thing from spinning.

Also, the 4 best guns to have (you can only carry 4 at one time) are :

Line Gun, Ripper, Javelin Gun, Flamethrower/Pulse Rifle.

Upgrade those. The line gun especially is superb and it's alternative weapon is a detonator mine which is awesome at times.

There are some pretty neato suits, too.

I found the Plasma Cutter my favourite. With damage and reload fully updated it was pretty strong. Also the Force Gun was good, especially when you was surounded by a load of Necro's.

Going to attempt some online play tonight. Plus, news of some DLC called Severed sounds pretty good. No release date set though :(
